DOJ and less Feds on the streets to catch the bad guys (many agencies are already on budget freezes)?
What does Obama support that Ron Paul wants to cut...? It's GOTTA COME FROM SOMEWHERE.
Forget all of the above because Ron Paul will not be our next President...
In my house I live on a budget. If I want a Ferrari I must pay for it. Ditto for a second home. The fedral govt. takes in only so much money per year. It must learn to spend responsibly on what it gets not what it wants.
Now, where will the cuts be made? Everywhere. Dial back spending to 2008 levels and freeze EVERYTHING for 5 years.
